All Trappers Don’t Wear Fur Hats: the prospector and his protégé
Jackson M. Langton

In All Trappers Don’t Wear Fur Hats, Jackson M. Langton describes the life and adventures of Vernon J. Pick. The author portrays a prospector who mentors him in his early years and provides adventurous experiences in mineral exploration and mining projects. Since the author is a University of Oklahoma graduate I felt intrigued by the story and agreed to provide constructive criticism and editing suggestions for its republication. The author’s passion for geology as depicted in this literary work helped me realize that all students pursuing a degree program would be inspired, especially those in this field of study.
